April Activity of the Month- Create a New 84 Chant!

March 16, 2016. Boston, MA.
Kick Butts Day 2016.

The snow is (almost) gone, spring is here, and Kick Butts Day is ON!  This month, we’re challenging you to create a new 84 Chant and show us how it sounds. The most clever, catchy, and creative chant might even be chosen to use during the Kick Butts Day march! Your Chapter will create a chant, then show us how loud and proud you can chant it. You should complete the activity and post to your Chapter page or the closed Facebook group about it.

Suggested Supplies: iPhone/Android video camera, The 84 Movement t-shirts for the video.

Activity Steps:

STEP 1 – Review current 84 chants for inspiration:

  • We are The 84! Big Tobacco out the door!
  • Youth power! Youth power! Big Tobacco’s final hour!
  • Let’s stand up and tell the truth! Big Tobacco targets youth!

STEP 2 – Put your minds and your rhymes together to create a new, tobacco related chant that will get the crowd going.

STEP 4 – Record yourselves chanting, and share it! Be sure to get permission from everyone in the video to share it on social media. Again, don’t forget to post to The 84 Movement’s closed Facebook group or your Chapter page so we can see your creative minds at work! You can share it on your Chapter or personal social media profiles to show off your skills even more!

STEP 5 – Send us the photo release forms for people in your video so that we can share it on our Fan Page and Twitter! Email the scanned copies to nvanatta@hria.org.

 

What’s at stake? A chance to have your chant used at Kick Butts Day on April 26th, and a prize pack for the Chapter with the most creative video. Think: beanies, backpacks, portable cell phone battery chargers, drawstring bags. Get on it!
Deadline: April 23, 2017 at midnight.
